Each year the AFL Masters Carnival is held in a unique location around Australia. Designed to be easily incorporated into a family holiday there is a healthy balance of football, tourism options and carnival events for the whole family.
Attracting up to 50 teams from across Australia, players compete in age groups ranging from Over 35’s to Over 60’s. To play in the National Carnival, players must turn 35 or older in that current year. Our women’s competition in 2021 allows players to turn 34 or older in that current year.
The provisional dates for the 2021 Perth Carnival are Sunday 26th September – Saturday 2nd October 2021. The date of the 2021 AFL Grand Final will be announced by the AFL later in the year.
